The Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series presented by K&N Filters consists of 33 nights of racing action at 17 different tracks throughout the United States. The country’s top Sprint Car drivers battle it out for their share of a $250,000 purse.

Johnson, of Eunice, Louisiana started from the pole position, but only led the final six circuits for the $6,000 score. ASCS Gulf South contender Tommy Bryant was ahead of the pack for 27 laps until Johnson passed him in the 53 car field.

“Tommy made me work for that win,” said Johnson. “I got by him a time or two and then he came right back after me. That was tough.” Johnson uses K&N air and oil filters on his Lanny Row’s Wesmar-powered The Shop Motorsports No. 41 Eagle.

As the laps clicked off, Johnson’s challenges were more intense. Bryant matched Johnson step by step until Johnson made a power move off turn two in the 30th round. The leaders also had to contend with Shane Stewart who turned the race into a three car duel.

Johnson had Stewart on his tail for the final four-lap dash to the checkered flag. Johnson won the race and Stewart took second.

Johnson’s next race will be July 3-4 at Riverside Speedway in West Memphis, Arkansas.
